El Bahia Palace, Marrakesh: 45 reviews and 143 photos


During the 1900?s, the French conquered Marrakesh and Marshal Lyautey used the Palace as his residence. During this time he chose to update and modernise the complex.
Decorations take the form of subtle stucco panels, zellij decorations, tiled floors, smooth arches, carved-cedar ceilings, shiny marble (tadlak) finishes and zouak painted ceilings.
